Information on D2 changes and future plans continues to remain scarce, but Bashiok did drop a little hint about a v1.13 patch change With appropriate disclaimers, of course.
As far as information of what’s being changed in the patch, almost anything we’re working on now could be removed. Testing could deem any change unworkable and we’d have to remove it. By releasing any information on possible changes we’d be raising expectations that the change is guaranteed to make it in, no matter how many disclaimers we place on it. That said, one change we’re planning is to increase the stash size to 12×10. As I said it is in no way a guaranteed change. Any number of reasons could mean it will not make it into the final patch. But enjoy the breadcrumb maybe?
I judge that this change will be universally-welcomed since every D2 mod since 2001 has had this feature. If you’re wondering what this looks like, here’s a comparison. Regulation D2 on the left, a shot from Brother Laz’s Median mod on the right. And his mod’s stash, which looks cavernous compared to D2’s, is only 10×10!
